Abstract

The traditional implied assumption of Intellectual Property systems has always put the humankind at the exact center of the creative universe. Given the latest breakthroughs of computer science, in particular the development of Artificial Intelligence, the question if entities other than humans can produce works worthy to be protected by copyright is gaining momentum. Considering that only a few studies have until now tackled the issue, this paper aims to move a first step in a still unexplored world.

Keywords: IP, intellectual property rights, copyright, artificial intelligence, AI
